We’re working hard to hold Governor Whitmer accountable for her broken promises, and it’s getting lots of attention.
It was a year ago Saturday, on October 12, 2018 in the heat of the general election campaign when then-candidate Gretchen Whitmer uttered perhaps the biggest whopper of the cycle.
Standing on a debate stage and accused by her opponent of planning to raise Michigan motorists’ gas taxes by as much as 20-cents per gallon, Whitmer condescended and shot back.
This is a bombshell that’s gone almost entirely unreported in all the coverage spilling out of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s use of the veto pen to eliminate $13 million for county sheriffs to patrol local roads, strip $35 million from public charter schools serving minority students and low-income families, and perhaps most ridiculously, reduce road funding by $375 million after spending two years grandstanding about “Fixing the Damn Roads”. Apparently, what she really meant was “Raise the Damn Taxes”!
Buried among the Governor’s 147 line-item vetoes in the state budget was a shocking and appalling move to greatly reduce government transparency and threaten whistleblowers in state Government.
